Top tips for a great night in

It’s official – staying in is the new going out and not just on chilly February nights!

According to a recent survey, folks in the UK said ‘not feeling guilty about staying in’ was one of their favourite things about winter.

And now it seems we’re set to take it to a whole new level, with 2019 destined to be all about inviting friends and family to join us for a fun night in…

From wine tasting to watching TV – DIY murder mystery nights to movie marathons – poetry nights to puppy playdates (who even knew there’s a website where you can borrow a puppy for the occasion if you don’t have one of your own?!) – the possibilities are endless.

Join the Girls Around Town between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday, when June and Rosalyn will be exploring a few of them. They’ll be choosing the gatherings they’d be most likely to organise or attend and agreeing (or disagreeing) on those they’d never give house room to.

Karaoke night in anyone? Definitely NOT a date going into June’s diary any time soon…

Tune in or listen online for some inspiration for a great night in – call the studio on 01636 678033 during the show to add your own ideas to the list – and find out which ones June and Ros are challenging each other to arrange for the months ahead.

For goodness bake

Plenty of food for thought on this weekend’s show…

Fresh from the first ever Newark Vegan Festival on Saturday 16 February, Rachel will describing some of the goodies that were on sale in the Ballroom of the Town Hall.

She’ll have news too of her cookery demonstrations at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on the day – if you’re reading this before Saturday, there’s still time for you to go along and see her in action! – and hopefully there’ll be a few minutes in the first hour of the show for her to share at least one of her recipes.

Later on, Jill Hesketh will be joining the Girls Around Town to talk about her bread-making courses – and she’s promised to bring some of her goodies to the studio too…

Jill be telling June and Rachel why and how she started Bake It and Take It, offering one and two day courses which, as the name suggests, give those taking part the opportunity to bake their own bread and then take it home to enjoy!

With just two clients joining her for each session, there’s plenty of time get hands-on with the dough and – with Jill’s expert guidance – make several different breads, from a white tin loaf to an Italian foccacia.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday for all this and more, including news of Jill’s new half-day pizza and tapas making courses and her plans to add cake and pastry making classes to the menu later this year…
